Does anyone else out there feel like the year is just FLYING by? It’s practically March and spring is nearly here. We all know that spring leads straight into prom season… and the weeks of corsages and boutonnieres (and sore hands) are closing in (for me at least!).

Corsages and boutonnieres are what we call “wearable” flowers, since you generally pin it to your person. But what about OTHER options for wearable flowers for a big occasion? And What about more casual ways to wear a few blooms, with no occasion at all?
You don’t have to wait for prom, (or be 17 for that matter,) to try some great wearable flower options. What could say spring better than a cute dress and a bloom tucked behind your ear on a Saturday afternoon around town? Here’s a few more ways to bring the drama and beauty of wearable flowers to real life.

Wearable Flower Trends for Spring 2013

Some fun new ways to wear flowers without this year, just for fun:

  • Flowers on your fingers. We all love the effect of big chunky rings. A flower ring is a great way to get that look with a fresh new approach. Don’t you just love the floral ring above from Flowers by Carolyn?
  • Flower head peices. A fascinator, hat or headband is a great foundation for wearable floral creations. A few flowers can make a fun small headpiece… and make a real statement! This is a twist on the ol’ “flower behind the ear.” With the structure of a headpiece as the base, you can get more creative with wearable flowers on your head, and use more flowers.
  • Flowers on your purse. If you’re out for a fancy evening, instead of wearing it on your wrist (too much like prom night) or ruining your dress with a pinholes, try attaching a small wearable arrangement, say a single rose and some greenery,  to your clutch for a fun pop of interest. For a more casual look, you could go big. How about a few Ranunculus on a big purse?
  • Flowers as a necklace or bracelet. Why limit materials to what’s available in your jewelry box, when you can have a custom made piece that matches your ensemble? You can use colored wires to create the “jewelry” and flowers as the “gems.” Or try something like the pendant below from Oh Joy.
